Aiming for a regular season series sweep of the Oklahoma Sooners (20-10, 8-9 Big 12) for the third straight year, Texas basketball (19-11, 8-9 Big 12) can get its 20th win in the regular season finale at the Moody Center on March 9.

This is an important game for head coach Rodney Terry and the Longhorns for multiple reasons as Texas hosts the rival Sooners in Austin for the regular season finale this weekend. March 9 is Senior Day for the Longhorns, which will include multiple key players honored at the Moody Center, including seniors Dylan Disu and Max Abmas.

The regular season finale also gives the Longhorns a chance to boost its resume entering Selection Sunday and up the seeding for the Big 12 Tournament next week. Texas and Oklahoma enter March 9 in a two-way tie for eighth place in the Big 12 standings.

The winner could jump easily into the top half of the seeding for the Big 12 Tournament, while the loser could fall into the double-digit seeds.

Here’s a look at the TV/streaming information and game time as Texas hosts Oklahoma at the Moody Center in Austin for the regular season finale on March 9.

Texas basketball injury report vs. Oklahoma

The biggest question mark for the Longhorns regarding injuries entering the regular season finale matchup against Oklahoma is the status of Disu. The super senior big man suffered a knee sprain in Texas's March 4 road loss to the No. 11 Baylor Bears.

Disu said in media availability earlier this week that his status for the Oklahoma matchup is a "game-time decision" due to the knee injury.

Toby Rowland of The REF 1400AM reported on March 9 that Disu was seen getting warm-up shots up during the pregame between Texas and Oklahoma.

Betting odds for Texas basketball vs. Oklahoma

Texas is a 5.5-point favorite against Oklahoma on March 9, and the Longhorns are favored in the money line (-245) over the Sooners (+198), per FanDuel. The over/under is 142.5 points.

Oklahoma is the No. 37 ranked team in adjusted efficiency in Division I, per KenPom. Texas, meanwhile, ranks 25th in the nation in adjusted efficiency.

KenPom gives Texas a 65 percent chance of beating Oklahoma and projects the final score of this game to be 74-70 in favor of the Longhorns.

Texas has owned the Sooners in the recent history in this matchup. The Longhorns have won two in a row and six of the last eight matchups against Oklahoma at home in Austin.

Texas also handily defeated the Sooners the first time these two teams met on the hardwood this season. Terry's squad defeated the Sooners in Norman on Jan. 23 by a score of 75-60 behind 19 points from Disu and 22 from Abmas.

If Disu is healthy and ready to go for the Longhorns, that will be a big boost for this squad. Disu has led the team in points per game and three-point field goal percentage in conference play. His presence on the floor also takes some of the pressure from opposing defenses off Abmas.

Final score prediction: Texas-78, Oklahoma-68
